This report identifies and discusses best practices to attract and promote inward and outward foreign direct investment. To better inform Canadian policy-making at various levels of government, this report provides an extensive and systematic review of the empirical evidence on the public policies and other factors that influence foreign investors. The report also evaluates which policies and other factors affect the degree to which foreign direct investment improves productivity and leverages other benefits in the economies receiving the investment.
